What’s New ????

Hi y’all !!

Wow, time flies when you are busy running a business. :{  I have a hard time keeping up with everything that is going on around here.  New fabrics, tools, notions, patterns & books arrive every week.  Too many to list everything here on the website.  Give me a call or send me an email & I will be happy to share more info with you & shoot more pictures for you if necessary.

I hope y’all have signed up for the monthly e-Newsletter, it has info about new ideas, merchandise and events in it.  I do that once a month, unfortunately more current than this poor neglected website.  So look at the side bar to your right on the screen and sign up for the newsletter.

If you are an Edyta Sitar fan, you are going to love her new collection, Blue Sky.  We are now carrying all her patterns and books.  Her new collection, Blue Sky is being released by Andover Fabrics in June.  Our order is in and as soon as they ship I will let you know, so watch FB for the announcement.

Here are a few new fabric collections that are already in the Cottage & available now.

Just arrived !!  Riley Blake has done a great TEXAS fabric with companion cowboy fabrics.  Don’t miss out, this won’t last long.

Row by Row 2017 is just around the corner.  Here are this years official Row by Row companion fabrics by Timeless Treasures, available for purchase now.

Also our Row By Row fabric plates are here and they look great !! they are also available for purchase now.

Double Gauze is all the rage and we have some of Shannon’s lovely soft colors & designs.  Great for baby paraphernalia and adult & kids clothes as well.  It’s machine wash & dry and it come out great.

We added Timless Treasures fabrics to our stock several months ago and have really enjoyed their designer’s beautiful work.  Here is a darling fairy print & coordinating “fairy dust”.

“Redwood Express” by Blank Quilting (another addition to our inventory) is catching the attention of lots of shoppers, especially the men. 

Hoffman Fabrics “Nocturne” is a beautiful life like rendition of the Owl family.  Beautiful companion fabrics too.

“Nature”,  an outdoorsy collection by Timeless Treasures is perfect for that masculine quilt.  It works nicely with several other outdoor collections too.

Tools and wood are more “man cave” type fabrics also by Timeless Treasures

Jumping to the opposite end of the spectrum, we have the Glampers !!!   Loralie Designs’s fun and colorful collection, “Vintage Holiday”.  RV fabrics are always popular !!

Yet another fun RV fabric collection from Maywood Studios, “Roam sweet Home”.

We have beautiful 11″ repeat border fabrics for the 60 degree angle ruler table runner.  They are truly fabulous.

“Tweet Me” is a very cute collection by Michael Miller.

I love Clothworks fabrics.  They are so soft and lovely.  And this new lavender collection is called “Lovely Lavender”.  (LOL)

More soft and romantic florals from Timeless Treasures, so like Spring.

Honey bees are forever popular and these are very sweet.  Three different collections from Henry Glass, Red Rooster Fabrics and Wilmington Prints.  Oh and there’s some Fire Flies in there too.

These soft and soothing colors and  subtle prints of the beach are so nice and comforting.  Clothworks soft and relaxing “Sea Side Cottage” collection is all that.  We also have a few 2.5″ strip rolls of this collection.

I LOVE TEA !!  Anything that has to do with TEA.  I’d like to share with you this soft & romantic, vintage tea collection, “Tea Time” by Clothworks

Altho, these beautiful rayon Batiks from Island Batiks, aren’t usually used for quilting, they are exquisite in clothing.  They drape so wonderfully and are so flattering.

Another wonderful “summer feel” collection is the “Lakeside Retreat”  by Wilmington Prints.  Check out what we did with the panel !!

Halloween is coming faster than you think.  We are getting some fun new Halloween collections.  These 3 bolts, glow in the dark !!!  “Ready, Set, Glow”, another fun fabric from Blank.

And this SPECTACULAR new digital printing process, has produced this stunning witch silhouette, “Super Nova Seasons” from Hoffman.  We also have a Santa silhouette on a blue night sky.

Beautiful sunflowers accented with gold is our latest fall fabric from Hoffman, “Falling For You”.

Another fun fall fabric collection is from Clothworks, “Fall Feast” is so cute with the bird houses.

Not necessarily a fall fabric, the colors in this darling “Roosters” collection by In the Beginning work beautifully with all the fall colors here in the shop. (check out the chicken wire !! )

Another chicken fabric collection is”Elegant Roosters” by Clothworks.

The Holiday fabrics are starting to trickle in.  We keep all our Holiday fabrics out & available all year long.  So keep an eye out for the latest Holiday prints.  Like this nostalgic Christmas scene panel that just arrived, “Winter Snow” by Timeless Treasures.  I love the quilt block on the end of the barn !!

We have a large variety of blenders too.  The “Artisian Spirit” by Northcott collections are highlighted with gold and so very popular.  They just seem to go with anything and add that extra spark.

Close ups:

Our many, many Shannon Cuddle fabrics continue to be a favorite to back your quilts.  Our ever changing stock is irresistible.  Use your imagination, jackets, baby supplies, bathrobes, toys, throws and pillows, it’s endless !!!











20% off all Christmas Fabrics

20 % 0ff all Christmas Fabrics

Hello Everyone ! 🙂  I hope y’all had a lovely Christmas with your friends and families.

We are closing in on the end of 2014 and looking forward to 2015 !!

To help reduce our inventory here at the Cottage, before the tax man requires our report, we are offering a  20% off discount on all Christmas Fabrics.  Come on in and get stocked up for your projects next year.  Good time to get yardage for Christmas gift bags and aprons, table runners and table cloths.  Think Christmas wardrobe enhancements and decorations for 2015 season.  (not to mention a jump on next years gift list)

Now is the time to get stocked up, so you can work on them in January and February when the doldrums of winter send you hiding in your sewing room. 🙂

Also, come on in and check out the new class room !!  It’s almost finished, but ready to use.  I am working on the scheduling right now.  It looks like our first class is going to be “Know Your Sewing Machine” sometime in January. (stay tuned for the posting)  In this class, you bring your own machine and the instructor will show you how to get the most out of your own machine, regardless of the brand.  Our marvelous sewing machines do way more than we ask of them on a daily basis.  So learn how to do more with the one you have.


New Classroom Pictures



A New Look

A New Look


Christmas has arrived at Little Cottage Quilt Shop.  My very talented daughter and her family came last Saturday and redid the inside for us.  It’s a wonderland !!  An explosion of Holiday fabrics and ideas.  Along with all the progress that is being made in the classroom, (opening soon) there is much to see !  Here is a sampling of what you will find:






                                        The new French doors to the classroom (they still need to be painted, but that is happening every night after                          we close, going to take a while to finish it all)

Christmas Ornament Class


We have had lots of inquiries about classes for this beautiful Christmas ornament.

We have decided to go ahead and start classes without the class room. (although, the guys are making great progress)  We will hold small classes in the new back room until the class room is finished enough to use.

Now, I need your help in deciding what time of day, and finding out who is interested in signing up.

Please let us know. Call the Cottage, (830)589-2502, or email,, or come on in and talk to us to get on the list.

Once we have gathered the data, I will let you know all the specifics. We can only do 8 people per class, so don’t delay. Thanks


Christmas Festival

Christmas Festival

Well, we are way behind schedule on the classroom and new back room. 🙁  But such is life and life marches on.  We have been planning a Christmas Festival since we opened.  Instead of canceling it completely because the classroom is not useable yet, we have decided to go to plan B.  It was suggested that we could be hosted by the Medina Quilt Group at the library.  Great idea !!  Thank you 🙂

“Christmas Festival in August”

August 23rd, 2014  11 am to 2 pm

at the Medina Community Library in Medina

(because the new classroom isn’t usable yet)

We will have idea demos for gifts and decorations.

Then after you have seen all the exciting ideas, you can venture up the road and visit the Cottage to see all the

fabulous new Christmas fabrics, (about 450 bolts of them !!)

Pick up all your supplies and fabrics to get you started on your Christmas projects.

There will also be a special demo on the new Silhouette Cameo Fabric Cutter

What a great thing to do on a hot August day…………. think cool 😉
